Davis Square Eats

Since I moved to Somerville last year, I’ve spent my fair share of hard-earned cash at most of the local eateries and watering holes. Two of these spots just so happened to be in the rotation for a TuftsNow, the official news site for my employer Tufts University, feature called Dish, where we review restaurants that serve the University community — A treat for a guy like me who loves to eat and drink…

First up for me was Foundry on Elm, which is a frequent hangout spot for my friends and I. Here’s a sampling of some of the dishes I photographed:

Next up was Posto, which I had not tried. Thanks to the crazy skills of the folks in the kitchen, I got treated to some of the most beautiful dishes I’ve ever photographed. Amazing work by the crew over there, tasty too!
